We were contacted by Color by Numbers to review their product and of course said yes because I thought Mason would love to try it. There are three different sites you can try; animals, princesses and vehicles. We got to review animals and vehicles.

As well as being in English, the program has been translated into German, Spanish, French and Russian.
Mason LOVED this. He really surprised me how well he recognized all the numbers(it went up to 9), the only thing he needed help with was moving the mouse around but he would point to the number and say it. I can’t believe how much this helped with his numbers! Let me point out that Mason is only 3 years old.
This is such a great learning toy.
